There are lots of ways to make a puppet! You can make friends big or small, simple or complex! It can be an intimidating art since there are so many ways to go about it, but that's why a multi-class series is a perfect introduction!
Join Maxx THIS WEEK for four days of puppet-making goodness and learn something new!
Opening this Thursday, August 17th is INNER-SECTIONS, a solo show featuring Seattle artist, Melissa Daye. Join us for the reception from 6-9 PM!
Melissa was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, the daughter of two medical professionals, but, while medicine remained an influence, her love for drawing and painting led her to art. INNER-SECTIONS explores her dual interests of visual expression and anatomy.
Psst, this also means that time's running short for you to come see our MIND OF PLANTS and NATIVE MOTHS OF SEATTLE shows! Stop in by Wednesday to see them and maybe take a piece home!
Book Spotlight: The Twin Blades
We've got SIGNED copies of the first two issues of The Twin Blades, an action comic that blends sci-fi and Aztec mythology into a story about family, believing in yourself, and magical swords. The Twin Blades is a latine story and is proudly produced by an entirely latine team of creators: Jarred Luján (writer), Julio Suarez (art), Rocco Langg (colors), Gabriela Downie (letterer).
We don't carry a lot of superhero-type comics, but if that's your genre, you should definitely give this one a shot!
Tuesday, August 15-18, 1-4pm daily: Come make puppets! We work hard to keep quality classes affordable while providing fair pay for our artist-instructors, but that means we gotta hit registration minimums! We hate having to cancel classes -- signing up early when possible helps a ton, but if you're a last minute spur-of-the-moment kinda person, this is your sign to go for it! 💖
